A major change to the 2022 meeting schedule for St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners was approved Tuesday.
During their first meeting of the year, commissioners decided to hold their meetings to just once a month. The five-member commission had previously met twice monthly.
The new schedule will go into effect in February, when the board starts a once-a-month meeting schedule the third Tuesday of the month.
The start time will remain 5 p.m.
Also, the commission set its executive committee meetings to 8 a.m. the second Tuesday of the month.
Commissioners said they can always exercise the option of calling a special meeting if circumstances warrant. Nonetheless, commissioner Ken Malone cast the lone dissenting vote in opposition to the changes.
